How Fat Grafting Can Improve Your Facial Contours
Your cheeks become gaunter as your body slows its production of collagen and cheek fat sinks lower in the face. Fat grafting is an effective and long-lasting treatment for restoring full cheeks that look round and youthful.
The loss of volume beneath your eyes increases the size of the tear troughs. This makes your eyes appear more sunken into your head. Not only does this age your face, but it also makes you appear more tired, regardless of how much sleep you have had. By transferring fat to the tear troughs, your face looks refreshed, younger and vibrant — all without the dreaded bags.
Although it is genetic, having a weak or recessed chin can negatively affect the shape of your face. To strengthen your jawline and establish good proportions on your face, you can choose to inject fat at the bottom of your face for a chin enhancement. By expanding the chin, you may also effectively diminish the prominence of your jowls.
Everyone has slight creases that extend from the edges of the nose to the corners of the mouth, known as nasolabial folds or smile lines. However, these lines become significantly more prominent as facial fat diminishes. By injecting fat cells back into this area, the lines become shallower and less noticeable.
If you want larger, plumper lips without having to undergo periodic dermal filler injections, inserting fat directly into your lips may be a better long-time solution. Fat grafting is a good choice for women who have seen their lips thin over time and wish to restore some volume.
